Yogic (relaxation) techniques offer a means to reduce the physical and mental reactions to stress. Yoga is one of the many popular techniques for achieving relaxation. Yoga has its origin in ancient India. Its original form consisted of spiritual, moral and physical practices. Yoga Nidra is one such effective technique, not only for physical or mental relaxation but also for preparing the mind for yogic discipline. Yoga Nidra is qualitatively different from relaxation.
Yoga Nidra is a sleep based, guided meditation. It is conscious sleep. All of the techniques used during a Yoga Nidra session are designed to guide an individual’s attention inward, creating a sense of wellbeing and ease.
Yoga Nidra resets, briefly at first, the mind and body. This reset allows them to function normally without the interference of the ego or unconscious mind. Recent research has shown that mindful relaxation techniques are associated with an increase in the size of the hippocampus in as little as eight weeks. Serotonin is released during Yoga Nidra.
Serotonin stimulates the growth of new neurons in the hippocampus, helping to restore mood and memory. Just 11 hours of learning a meditation technique (including Yoga Nidra) induces positive structural changes in brain connectivity by boosting efficiency in a part of the brain that helps a person regulate behavior in accordance with their goals.
Clients will receive healthy nutrition tailored in healing damaged neuron networks, individual workout programs and healthy rest and sleep routines. Together with the medical and clinical team, the clients learn to manage their physical health. Clients learn to relax and calm their brain and thoughts.
Physical Exercise and Recreational Therapy
Clients heal best in an environment where physical exercise and recreational therapy aspects are used. A few of these activities include, paddle boarding, kayaking, workout facility, hiking, rock wall climbing, softball, swimming, ropes course, bowling, etc.
In Maple Mountain Recovery, clients participate in a Lakota style ceremony. The ceremony is intended to cleanse and purify the body, mind, spirit and soul. In a sweat lodge ceremony, clients confront their trauma and emotional, psychological and spiritual blockages in a safe way. Clients focus on their true needs and loving self and others in a healthy way. They find answers and healing within as they are shut off from the stresses and distractions of the outer world and as they are reoriented back to their authentic selves. Lakota style ceremony is universally spiritual and helpful and doesn’t require any specific cultural, spiritual or religious orientation.

16 Steps to Help Women
In the women’s treatment, Maple Mountain Recovery uses the 16 steps to help women not only heal from addictions but also help them empower themselves due to much oppression and trauma that our clients go through in their lifetime.

Healthy Living Skills

Beyond Trauma is a first phase trauma treatment program that will educate the client on many aspects of trauma. It was developed and researched by Stephanie Covington et al., who is a leader in women’s issues in substance abuse and trauma. As a client learns about trauma, they will understand their own feelings, thoughts and behaviors better and feels less shame and compulsion to react.
This program prepares the client for the second phase of trauma treatment – reprocessing trauma with a trauma trained therapist. The education quickens the process of healing for the client and when done right, the client can start enjoying the results of trauma treatment very fast. Using Beyond Trauma is the right way to start trauma treatment and MMR is proud to be part of the movement of using evidenced based treatment methods for trauma

Programming at Maple Mountain Recovery offers many different ways to induce relaxation and the feelings of safety, as feeling relaxed and safe is the most important aspect in early brain recovery.
